I think everyone (excepting some Pend fans) agree that it should have counted. Imagine if Preds get a couple and lose by 2, or lose in OT....

Should be 2-2, at worst, right now. That bounce off of Ek was just awful luck, buy it counts.

I feel like when LeBron is locked in, he's one of the best all-around defenders I've ever seen. Here's hoping that just the fact that he's defending KD will be enough to keep him locked in on that end of the floor.

Lebron finally realized how good he was then Kyrie Irving hit a shot and the Cavs came back and won the 2016 title.

LeBron leading the Finals in quite literally every single significant statistic helped as well. I'm not feeling too confident about the matchup, simply because Durant (who apparently gets a pass for doing essentially the same thing for which James was vilified) is a huge difference maker for the Warriors. The only good news is that he is yet another piece on the Warriors only interested in one end of the court. The difference in this series comes down to two things IMO - 1. Can the Cavs actually turn up the pressure on D (especially you, Love and Kyrie) and "hold" the Warriors under 105 on a nightly basis and 2. Can LeBron basically do exactly what he did last year? Both teams have star players that are liabilities on D, but the Cavs have the best player on the planet.

I'm gonna let my heart rule my head and say that somehow, the Cavs pull it out. Love redeems himself for last year, and averages almost 20 and 12 while Kyrie hits some big threes while netting over 23 a game and James cements himself as, at worst, one of the top 2 players of all time, averaging almost a triple double and grabbing another MVP. Durant chokes again come clutch time in the playoffs, but continues to get a pass. Crying Draymond memes catch on, and they're delicious. Cavs win it, this time on home court 4-2, completing a dream double for me as the Preds do the same to the Pens!

I definitely remember Stablein. I'll admit that I'm amazed that he stuck in the League that long, though. I actually can still recall the first OSU game I watched - 1987 OSU-TTUN, with guys like Tupa, Vince Workman, and Spielman sending Earle out a winner.

Brian Stablein had himself a huge game IIRC

Now THAT's a blast from the past! My earliest Buckeye memories are of guys like Stablein, Graham, Graham, Graham, (QB-WR-RB) Snow, Tovar, Smith, Harris, By'not'e, Spellman, Styles, Paul, and Powell. Ahh, the (not so) golden era!

I'm still excited to see what Hilliard can do. The guy has the potential, but what was once the weakest position group on the roster when Meyer arrived now boasts 6-8 guys that could start at virtually every other B1G school. I'll always look at Mike Mitchell and wonder what might have been. I don't know if his heart just wasn't that into football, which I could understand. Ricky Williams had the same problem. More tan anything else, I was just pumped to see him play because he had the greatest nickname that I'd heard in quite a while.

Kinda got the feeling that the Buckeyes can get back in it if they offer. Maybe he's the type of prospect who they'd prefer to see at camp/FNL before giving him an offer.

Comment 24 May 2017

I just couldn't resist. I did love some DMac though. I remember him being totally unstoppable on NCAA '99 on offense and blitzing every down with Keith Bulluck on D. Best Syracuse team ever, from a video game perspective anyway.

Comment 23 May 2017

Kyrie's evolution over the last three seasons has been amazing. He sees the whole court so much better now. Add that to Love arguably playing his best ball since arriving in Cleveland, and the best player on the planet, and this is a team that I think is actually better than last year's squad...on offense.
